Fulham sign Dan James, Layvin Kurzawa, Willian and Carlos Vinicius on busy Deadline Day for the Cottagers

Fulham completed a loan for Leeds winger Dan James at the end of a busy Deadline Day for the club, which also included a loan deal for Paris St-Germain left-back Layvin Kurzawa and the permanent signings of Willian and Carlos Vinicius.

Wales international James is seeking regular first-team football ahead of the 2022 World Cup which commences in November.

Three other Premier League clubs were interested in the 22-year-old, including Tottenham, but James felt he would not get the game time he wanted if he were to join Antonio Conte’s side.

Former Chelsea and Arsenal winger Willian also completed his move to Craven Cottage on Thursday.

The winger had been training with the first-team squad for the last two weeks after mutually terminating his contract at Corinthians.

Fulham boss Marco Silva was impressed with what he has seen from the 34-year-old in training and views him as someone who can add experience and quality to his squad.
